In which I discuss how communism is part of the Lefts past and present, and how rejecting this leads to some bad takes and lack of good solidarity. Topics include a Clip from Black American Communist Paul Robsen, The local policies of a Communist mayor in Chile, A Kurd’s view that real culture clash is democracy vs capitalism, And the tendency and reasons for democratic socialists and other leftists to fall behind the US war machine.
